And this should let us methodically destroy our existing infra automation (the Chef system which nobody understands & has been a glue trap for previous infra people) and replace it all.

Burn it all with fire, really.

And this is done! The part that happens on an individual instance takes about 10 seconds. The Github Actions part takes about 60 seconds, which is also nice.

Have not yet measured the middle step, which is a lambda tickling a key in consul.

Current status: playing with my new Grimloc TACTICAL carabiners. They are black, of course. I’m going to put them on my sling bag.

I am enjoying my job about a million times more than I was in the fall. I don’t have to dig under immovable political objects to make technical progress. I am pairing on technical work with fun partners daily. I get solo coding time too. I am watching problems get solved.

Startups capitalizing on governmental failures are "dystopian." But also they are everywhere from education, to transportation to health care. Without an ethical foundation, you get mass exploitation. This whole thread twitter.com/dhh/status/1227293

anyway I just gave more money to Warren because humans work in predictable ways

I am a Warren stan, but I am obviously ideologically 100% fine with Sanders winning the nomination. I am sort of okay with the NH results. Mayor Pete needs to go away immediately if not sooner, however.

*Either* rust needs an equivalent of the venerable node async package, OR I need to do me some searching.

Ceejbot's mastodon instance. This is an overprovisioned, personally-run instance running on AWS. I welcome friends to create accounts here. I intend to run it as long as people are using it.
